California's 2015 almond production is forecast at 1.80 billion meat
pounds, down 3 percent from May's subjective forecast and down 4
percent from last year's crop. The forecast is based on 890 thousand
bearing acres. Production for the Nonpareil variety is forecast at 670
million meat pounds, down 6 percent from last year’s deliveries. The
Nonpareil variety represents 37 percent of California’s total almond
The average nut set per tree is 5,874, down 12 percent from 2014. The
Nonpareil average nut set is 5,239, down 14 percent from last year. The
average kernel weight for all varieties sampled was 1.43 grams, down 1
percent from the 2014 average weight of 1.45. The Nonpareil average
kernel weight was 1.61, up slightly from last year. A total of 98.8 percent
of all nuts sized were sound.
With the crop estimated to be smaller than last year and smaller than the subjective estimate, we may see all prices begin firming up by 10-20 cents per lbs in the coming days.
If you have any demand please advise us. We look forward to assisting you.
Please note, much of the USA will be on a long holiday weekend for our 4th of July holiday.
